Region V South - Day 3 - A great day

Good afternoon to all!

We are witnessing a great day here in Cordele. All our practice from previous days has prooved useful, we had a full grid today and a smooth nice launch.

The weather brief was as good as we could ever imagine, with nice Cu's distribution and small chances of T-storms. Fernando told the pilots to expect their speeds today to be in the 70s, so we are enjoying a great day here.

Grid time was 12:00 with the first launch at 12:26. Grid order was FAI, 18 m and Sports. The gates open at 12:55, 13:06 and 13:45.

As I am writing the pilots are on course reaching their second turnpoint. You can view the tracker here http://www.ssa.org/sailplanetracker/default.asp? and enjoy the race.

I have just received a call from a pilot that landed out, safe and sound. All others doing well on course.

Keep an eye on the scores later in the afternoon.

Cheers,

MD
